Riverhead detectives are on the case of the stolen pumpkins after someone pulled a real ding-dong-ditch and ransacked a Baiting Hollow farm this week.
Police said 600 pumpkins – valued at approximately $4200 – were stolen from Rottkamp’s Fox Hollow Farm last week. An employee reported the theft to police at 2:30 p.m. on Monday.
The family-owned farm has been operating on Sound Avenue since 1967.
Anyone with information on the theft is asked to call Riverhead police at 631-727-4500.
